"Infernobot" is a story I had an absolute blast writing. It is actually the one story from The Dark Verse, Vol. 4 that is solid sci-fi horror. I infuse just enough life into a stark sci-fi world and blend it with that metaphysical nature of The Dark Verse that stirs the mind (and soul).

There are no set places or times for The Dark Verse, so just as medieval, modern, ethereal, and grotesque settings line its pages, so too do realms of technological illustriousness.

Stretch Goal 4: Achieved

There will now be an additional one-page illustration for "The Apocalypse Bringers" in The Dark Verse, Vol. 4: Within the Depths of Soul!

So much awesome support so far! Thank you, everyone!

Rewards Add

DEEPER THAN HELL BUNDLE
These have been really popular (I hoped they would be), so I will be adding more. However, I want to give an extra reward to those who are among the first 25 since that's the limit I had first set. The first 25 backers of this reward will now receive John F. Stifter's signature in all of their books! The second batch of these bundles (when I add it) will be a separate reward installment so these first 25 will remain clearly established.

THE CHASM BUNDLE
I've added this reward for those backers that want to pick up the full collection of Dark Verse books and not necessarily the bookends.

Onward!

Kickstarter project recommendation: I have great admiration for the amount of effort and passion going into making the first feature-length hand-puppet film in 30 years (which of course is horror!)
